Matches will take place from January 11-14, during the inaugural Big Bash League First Nations round.
Coaching and mentoring the Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers teams will be NSW men's and women's Indigenous coaches Jeff Cook and Kerry Marshall.
"The initiative of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander T20 Cup is to identify and give young players an opportunity to represent NSW in the National Indigenous Cricket Championships and further develop as a player and person," Cook said.
"I'm looking forward to seeing the players showcase their skills and create friendships within both teams."
